Hi guys, I can't seem to find an answer for this anywhere...

Am I able to use the windows 7 family upgrade pack to upgrade Windows 7 starter on my netbook?

I know it will work for my XP desktop and Vista laptop, just unsure about my Windows 7 Netbook.

Any help appreciated

The family pack allows for three installations, so if this Netbook meets the system requirements, and you have only installed it on two other machines, then you should be fine.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Well...netbooks generally come without any means of installing from disc media.

The upgrade pack consists of two DVDs (32-bit, 64-bit).

The upgrade can also be downloaded. You will need to contact the vendor where you purchased the upgrade to obtain information for the download. I called MS to confirm this. :thumbup2:
